General Hospital: Perkie's Observations



Alexis lets Mac know that she’ll be working both Sonny and Maxie’s cases. Maxie’s would be better if she’d cooperate, but she’s determined to go down for Lisa’s murder.  Mac wants Alexis to convince Maxie just how bad things are.  Matt wants someone to tell her that it’s not what Robin would want.  Spinelli and Matt both decide they’ll be the one to talk to Maxie. 

Maxie wakes up in her cell, to find Anthony in the one across from her.  He blames her and claims they had a deal.  Maxie apologizes, saying it all just slipped out.  She says she’s where she belongs and that she needs him to back her up. 

Luke is surprised when Tracy shows up at his hotel room.  Tracy’s angry that she saw him fawning over Anna at Jake’s.  Luke mentions paying for a name change. He swears there’s nothing between him and Anna.  Anna lets herself into the suite with her suitcase. 

Sonny shows up at Michael’s.  Michael complains about his heavy school work load, so Sonny offers to get him a tutor. Michael turns him down.  Now that he’s going to trial Sonny has a favor. He wants Michael to break off all contact with Starr.  Sonny feels Michael will be called as a witness, since he was at the scene. Despite whatever compassion Michael feels for Starr, she blames Sonny for something he didn’t do.  Michael agrees to stay away from Starr. 

McBain finds Starr at the airport.  He tries to convince her to go back home, but Starr has decided she’s not going back. She needs to testify at the trial.  John assures her that the prosecution will contact her if they need to. He figures she wants to go after Sonny herself.  He says she needs time. Her family needs to help her. Starr insists she’s not going home and storms off. 

Sam’s getting ready to head to New York, to look into the DVD.  Jason says he’s going to help Sonny.  Sam questions whether Sonny is innocent or not.  Jason swears Sonny would admit if he’d accidentally killed a child. However, Sam feels that’s what Jason would do.  She reminds him that Sonny sabotaged Jax’s plane and shot out Robin’s house. Maybe Jason just wants to believe no matter what. 

Jason thinks that Sonny isn’t a good enough shot to have gotten two tires, in the dark, with his shot arm.  Jason says Sonny wouldn’t have left the gun in Kate’s office. He would have disposed of it. Sam feels that’s what a rational Jason would have done, not emotional Sonny. 

Jason wonders if Sam wants Sonny to be guilty. Sam says she has wondered what it would be like if Sonny was sent away. Jason would be free. They would be free. Things would be safer for them if Jason wasn’t always cleaning up Sonny’s messes.  Jason reminds her that this is what he does.  She says things are different now; they need to provide the safest, best life for their child.  Sonny arrives, so Sam leaves for her trip.
   
Sonny questions things with JaSam. Jason tells him that Sam spoke with McBain at the church. However, she shut things down once she knew he was a cop.  Jason thinks John got under Sam’s skin.  Sonny asks if Sam thinks he caused the accident. Jason reassures him that she’ll know the truth when they find the real shooter.  He has a file on McBain and thinks John will be a big problem.  Sonny asks where John is vulnerable. Jason says his family. 

Tracy offers Anna her condolences. Anna says she’s giving Patrick some space.  Anna apparently has the wrong room. Before she can leave to find hers, Luke offers his suite to her. He  tells her that there are two bedrooms and that she shouldn’t’ be alone right now.  Tracy thinks Luke is taking advantage of Anna in her grief. Anna decides it’s a good idea. Tracy storms off, but not before telling Anna that she was warned. 

Anna wonders if she should go to her own room, since Tracy isn’t happy. Luke feels that Tracy is jealous and he loves the challenge.  Anna says they’ll get on each other’s nerves. Luke laughingly agrees. 

Matt and Spinelli argue who should be the one to talk to Maxie. Spin gets angry and jumps on Matt. The two fight until Mac breaks them up.  A uniformed cop lets Mac know that Anthony’s down in holding with Maxie. Mac heads down to the holding cell to get her. 

Maxie feels she needs to pay for killing Robin. She asks Anthony to say that she told him she killed Lisa, or to say that he saw her kill Lisa.  Anthony points out that that would be accessory after the fact.  Anthony wonders why she’s doing this. Maxie says again that Robin is dead because of her. If she won’t pay for that then she’ll pay for Lisa.  Anthony warns her not to point the finger at him or else.  He has an idea for what she can say. 

Tracy stops by to see Anthony.  She offers to bail him out, if he signs divorce papers. However, Anthony thinks he’ll get released soon enough.

Mac brings Maxie back to the main room. She says she’s been lying to them all.  Maxie says she lied about Anthony’s involvement. She did it all by herself. She killed Lisa and the first officer and she can prove it.

As McBain is leaving the airport, he runs into Sam. She is arriving for her flight.  Sam wonders if he’s following her. He turns it back on her and asks if she’s following him.  Sam asks if he’s leaving. John says he has unfinished business with Sonny.  He swears he’s good guy. Sam says Jason is also.  John asks about Sonny. Sam says she’s not going to talk about him. She asks John to stay away from Jason.  John thinks its sweet how she looks out for Jason.  She says she’s also looking out for him. 

John lets Blair know that he lost Starr. However, he has an idea where she’s going. Starr shows up at Michael’s door and says she had nowhere else to go.

Funny line of the day: after Mac pulls Matt and Spin apart
Alexis: “Do you want me to call someone?”
Mac: “Like who? The police?”

Did it seem to anyone else that Finola Hughes was laughing for real when Tracy snapped at her before leaving. Seemed like a bit of an ad lib from Jane Elliot.

I know he’s a homicidal maniac, but I love Anthony and his ability to get out of whatever sticky situation he’s found himself in.

I was glad to see Sam finally have an opinion and finally voice it especially since it was anti-Sonny. Until it became Jason is the bestest evah mantra. Although I highly doubt that Sonny would have fessed up if he’d realized that he’d killed a child. He didn’t fess up to shooting Robin in front of her daughter, so what’s the difference. So Jason can shut it about that.

Now onto the negative Sam comment, honey, you married a mob hitman, and then decided to have his baby, it’s a little too late to be worried about the danger factor. Better women than you have tried to make him change his ways.

Don’t’ like this Anna/Luke moving in together baloney. She should be staying at the house with Patrick and Emma. I do NOT want a romance here. And Luke sucks way too much for the fantastic Anna and the equal wonderful Tracy to be fighting over him

I agree with you Perkie, I don't want Anna and Tracey fighting over that louse.

I was wondering today if Sonny was going to suggest silencing Sam like he once suggested silencing Maxie when he was on trial for Claudia's murder.

So is Jason saying it's okay to target wives/girlfriends/children now??? He sure offered up that pic of Natalie and Liam to Sonny real quick. Jason is slowly but surely reaching Sonny's level of douchbaggary.

I do think JL and BW play off of one another really well. Like I've said before, they should've brought her on as a daughter Anthony never knew he had instead of a Maxie recast. I think she has a better father/daughter chemistry with BW than she does JJY.

Edited to add... I thought Spin jumping on Matt was funny.

I like that Sam has an opinion now and seems to be anti-Sonny but it seems forced considering she used to be with him not too long ago and had no problems with him back then..and you are married to a serial killer, so what were you really expecting his best friend to be like? However..I LOVE LOVE LOVE all things McBam aka Sam and John (do they have an official squish name yet lol?) they still have that Port Charles chemistry and I love it. I would have no problem with these two pairing up whatsoever.

I thought the little scuffle between Spin and Matt was done very well between BA and JC, they're good comedic actors when they need to be.

I don't get why Jason would show Sonny the picture of Natalie and Liam.. I have two issues with this, I'm not a Natalie fan, and although it would be nice for Melissa Archer to have a job, I don't want that job to be on gh lol, and two, aren't Jason/Sonny against hurting innocent woman and children, I don't see the point in that picture being shown..especially considering the whole thing with Sonny shooting Robin infront of Emma, and both him and Jason saying that if Sonny had anything to do with the car accident killing innocent people, especially a child that he'd turn himself in. I wonder where Jason showing Sonny that picture is going.

I love that I'm actually looking forward to watching gh again, I hope others start tuning in as well so we get those ratings up and hopefully stay on the air a little more longer.

Thanks again Perkie!

I actually get where Sam is coming from. She faced losing Jason, is pregnant with his child and he's working as a hitman for a crime lord. I think in this situation you can change your mind and questioning if this is the place for a kid to grow up in.
So I was okay with Sam becoming a little bit more anti-Sonny. What I didn't like was Jason's response to it all. In front of Sonny he made it seem like it was John McBain who is screwing with Sam's head. Can't have your wife an opinion of her own? And with all that happened in these last six months isn't it even understandable? Of course Sam knows Jason and knows what he does for a living, but hey she can ask what would be if Sonny wasn't in their lives. And she can do it all on her own!

The scuffle between Spinelli and Matt didn't do anything for me. Sure all of the actors involved got a funny line, but for me the scenes came off kind of lame.

Anna moving in with Luke was surprising and seemed odd. She should have stayed with Patrick and Emma. Patrick showed more than once that he could use the help to deal with everything. So why move out to give him and Emma space??? Didn't really make sense to me. Anyway I loved Tracy's jealousy over the situation.
What to do with Luke? He seems irredeemable. This character was screwed up so bad by Guza's writing I don't know what to think these days. Tony Geary and Finola Hughes do have chemistry and I like how Luke is in scenes with Anna ... but too much has happened to go even near me cheering for the character of Luke. I thank Ron and Frank for their affords to make it work, but I think they might be in for their biggest challenge here.^^

Loved the scene between McBain and Sam at the airport!!!

Don't like that Starr is back and Sonny telling his son who he can and can't have contact with made me a little bit angry. I don't think that the case would get in the way of any relationship Michael might or might not have with Starr.

Ive been calling them McBam ever since my friend johnathon suggested it to me. I think it fits given their chemistry.

I dont know whats going on, but jason over the last few months has lost a lot of points with me. Can Sam change jason - I dont know, carly changed him with michael, liz tried with jake and failed but jason wasnt IN love with her, he only loved her as a friend, and robin tried but she didnt have the power of motherhood on her side vs. carly who did. I guess too there was courtney but again she didnt have motherhood on her side. I think where sam looses an edge is that unlike liz and carly I dont think shes prepared to play that card or she would have used it to far better effect when the whole brain surgery/robins funeral stuff was going on. Yes sam married a hit man and she knew and was okay with a lot of this, but i dont know how anyone can say he hasnt been more of a d-bag lately than he has been historically, thus I would argue she didnt sign up quite for this. If he continues being an asshat, I say bring on mcBAM.

HATE HATE HATE tracy chasing luke so the idea of ANNA now joining the battle for attentions makes me throw up a little in my mouth. Hell to the N.O. I can think of a at least three different pairings for either woman I would prefer over luke. Sorry, but while it was luke that drew me to GH initially I am so done with him and all the Floating Rib signs in the world arent going to change that.

I have to commend Jen Lilley on her performance. She is SO much better as the stripped-down, more subtle Maxie. She looked beautiful. And the combination of Anthony and Maxie is incredibly watchable. I don't care for Anthony but there is no denying that Bruce Weitz is a great actor and draws better performances out of his scene partners.

I had little patience for Spinelli and Matt's pissing contest. Ugh. I watched because of Mac, Alexis, and their good one-liners, but those scenes were annoying. Spinelli and Matt are so dense to think that they know Maxie better than Mac? Seriously? Spinelli and Matt have back-slid after being tolerable during Robin's funeral. I wish Spinelli would have slugged "Maxie's boyfriend" just because I wanted to so badly from my couch. Then the rolling around on the desk happened. Double ugh. I must have missed the vaudeville music and Groucho Marx shuffle by.

I think Chad Duell is so adorable. That's all I have because I find Michael boring. I think Starr's hair is too blonde. The combo...FFWD material.

John and Sam have more chemistry in him offering her gum than Jason and Sam in any lovey-dovey moment. I am on-board with John/Sam but this "I know you"-BS is tiresome. I like Sam actually investigating a mystery but since it involves Franco, I would prefer she not be alone being pregnant and all. Perhaps, John will follow her to ensure her safety?

I am assuming Jason showing Natalie Buchanan's picture means we'll be seeing her by May sweeps. If we do, I hope it's an episode or two and just to wrap up her loose ends with John, so he's single.

I have to eat crow on this one: I kinda enjoyed Luke in this episode. ARGH! I hate Luke but he and Tracy played off each other so well and the actors appeared to be having so much fun. Ya know, it's because of my love for all things Tracy Q and Jane Elliot "holds court." I even let Luke slide for telling Tracy he changed the name of Jake's to The Floating Rib for Liz's sake which is not what was stated on screen at the time. I let my anger pass on this one. Continuity should not be a problem when the renaming happened last week after Luke stated to Anna that he resented seeing the bar's sign as it reminded him of his killing Jake. No mention of it being for Liz.

And there is NO reason Anna would be "giving Patrick and Emma space" at this crucial time or for her to share living space with Luke. Silly plot point.

I love KA and I hate all the criticism against her and the crossovers in general but RC makes me crazy when he forgets that Starr is rich. She should have shown up at the Metrocourt, Michael and Carly could have been in the lobby and since KDP says that she hasnt been asked back to GH, Carly could have called Blair to let her know Starr was there, Blair could have said she has 2 other kids to take care of and couldnt come to get Starr right away, asked Carly to look out for her, and Carly would have been set up as a sort of surrogate mom. Michael could have mentioned how much PCU has helped him sort out his life and we could have Michael and Starr interacting in school.

Full Disclosure: I thought RC overused KA for the last few years of OLTL and my love for Starr waned but the criticism makes me want to forget my quibbles and hold her close.

I actually think (hope) it was a deterrent. Sonny asked where John was vulnerable and Jason said, family same as Sonny, as though to remind Sonny how he feels when someone comes after his family and to stay away.

Me too. When Spin apologized to Mac and Alexis first, I thought he was going to punch Matt in the face, so I was quite shocked to see hiim jump on Matt. It was silly and childish, yet made me laugh.

soapbaby wrote:

I completely agree with this too. She looked so much prettier and vulnerable and less annoying and mental like she did when she declared last week that she was the killer.

I totally get where you're coming from. I have hated Luke for the past year, but the way AG is playing things right now, with the new regime, I'm sort of liking him again and I know the writers are pulling my strings, but I'm fallinf for it.

soapbaby wrote:

I don't think it was a continuity error. I just think Luke is trying to earn as many brownie points as he can, and since Liz didn't seem to hate the idea, he made Tracy think it was for Liz' benefit as well.

You know why I have an issue with the stuff coming out of Sam's mouth is because she was PREGNANT before and was ok to live her life with a mobster. Please you don't get to think about his life NOW...you should have thought about that every freaking time you defended him. The man has been in danger before...so why now why this pregnancy. Was it ok because before it was Sonny's kid and it really didn't matter.

I have no issue with Sam having a life outside of Jason in fact I commend it, I just have an issue with her running around while pregnant (because this is her miracle) Doing things that will most likely cause undo stress on her and the baby.

Oh yeah and for those -- why is now suddenly accepted that if Sonny was out of the picture that Jason would be free. Did we not go through this...there is no easy out for a mobster. Jason takes over for Sonny if Sonny goes to jail.

Sorry Sam you may dream it and I am glad you got to express it but after 7 years of being his YES girl..you lose that option. I would have more respect for you if you took your child and ran

That rant over --- can i get McBAM, this is what JaSam 1.0 were for me.

Also I don't know if its the lighting or her just being happy that ME is on the set....but KeMo looked FABULOUS yesterday

Hello EET my old friend...I have to say I actually agreed with almost your whole post...except for the part that Jason only loved Liz as a friend. Jason had a thing for Liz for a long time...she is the one that always pulled back, or chose Lucky...in 2002 she moved in with him and then right out... because of Sonny and the mob...(really it was so Frons could put Jason with his "It Girl Courtney" at the time). Whether you want to believe it or not....Jason was in love with Elizabeth back in 2007 and 2008...he sure said it enough to her...regardless of Jake. Liason was never written to have a real chance...the show continued to play that danger and motherhood card.. As much as I.... am MANY others love them...Guza didn't want Jason tied down with a wife and kids. Now Guza is gone...RC may be different story... who knows....It doesn't change the fact that the same rule applies to Sam as Elizabeth...What mother worth her salt...would intentionally endanger her children...It is a shame the show made such a big deal about this aspect in the past.

Now I have to say that I LOVE McBam!!! What off the charts chemistry these two have...This has nothing to do with Liason...It is just a fact...ME and Kemo are fantastic together...When I saw them show a pix of Natalie yesterday I literally groaned out loud...I have never liked Natalie and I was really hoping that McBam would get a chance. I also agree that it was totally out of character for Jason, to bring up Natalie and Liam as John's weakness....especially now since he is about to become a father again, ...Talk about hypocritical. I am loving John regardless though...what a great addition to the show.

I actually love Anthony and Maxie together also...They really play off one another well....I also thought that Spinelli and Matt were true comedic genius yesterday. These new writers have great one liners.

A trial 2 weeks after the crime...and the crime is murder? Come on! As an attorney, this is redonkulous. I guess I will just ignore my brain screaming "This isn't how it happens!" the way any doctor watching this show must have done when Jason woke up from brain surgery in his black t-shirt and jeans without so much as a hair out of place.

Sam wants Sonny to go to jail because she wants her baby to be safe? Hahahahahahaha! Where are all the people who said Sam gets Jason's life and accepts him and his life without expecting change? That was almost the entire argument for the two of them being better than Liason. Jasam fans said that Sam "got his life" and "didn't want him to change" and "accepted the danger" and wasn't afraid like weak little Liz. I'm loving this! I have a feeling more lies and cover-ups are coming from Sam in the name of protecting Jason and her baby. Can't wait!

Now everyone knows I can't stand Sam. I didn't like her with Jax, Sonny, Jason or Lucky (although he was the best pairing so far for her IMHO). I didn't like her from the moment I saw her strut her con artist behind into PC....but....I am enjoying her scenes with McBain. This is not me pimping McBam to get Liason (because one doesn't necessarily get me the other). I have no problem disliking practically everything about Sam and still pimping Liason Wink I actually really enjoy their scenes. I'm pretty shocked. I didn't think Kemo had chemisty with anyone. I will admit to being wrong about that now. She and ME have great chemistry and she seems more comfortable with him.

I hate the Anna/Luke/Tracy thing. Luke is a child killing rapist to me and nothing will change that. I wish they would write him off permanently. Anna and Tracy are way too good for him. I wouldn't mind seeing an Anna/Mac/Alexis triangle, though.

One more thing....I loved it when Sam whined to Jason about him having to clean up Sonny's messes! She was one of Sonny's messes! She and Jason first got together because she was living in his house while pregnant with Sonny's baby because Sonny was trying to work things out with Carly. She was one of Sonny's biggest messes!

I am confused....I thought that Sonny did admit to shooting Robin. He attempted to excuse it because he wasn't on his pills at the time, but he did admit to doing it. He discussed it with Robin and with Patrick. I also believe that he passive aggressively admitted to messing with the plane...but I won't go too deep into that.

So Sam thinks that if Sonny is in jail that Jason will be free? I guess Sonny has been keeping Jason captive all this time. I guess Jason has no mind of his own or no free will. Sam doesn't care about the fact that her desire for Sonny to go to jail will have an impact on Michael...who will depend on Jason even more....which also means more Carly. Does Sam have pregnancy brain?

Speaking of pregnancy brain...wasn't Sam talking to Sonny at the hospital when the accident went down? Maybe it was the way the scenes were cut, but when it aired, Sonny was talking to Sam at the hospital while Jason was inside....IIRC.

Hey maxsmom. As a longtime OLTL viewer, I wish I could find some joy in Kristen Alderson's performances or in the character of Starr Manning but I haven't been able to since 1997. Starr's introduction to GH was horrible and Cole/Hope being killed off to make way for a "Starr-X'ed Lovers"-redux with Michael does her no favors. Starr's been thrust at GH viewers in a heavy, dramatic story and I don't think KA has the chops plus this audience had no reason to care about Starr before watching her mourn her losses. It's like the Kate/Connie DID storyline. No one one cares about Kate so why should anyone care about her having multiple personalities? Kate, like Starr, should have been integrated in the canvas before this storyline. IMO, being romantically paired off with Michael doesn't help as he's human Ambien. RC really did KA (and the audience) a disservice on this. Hopefully, it can be repaired if she stays beyond the 13 weeks in her longterm contract.

I completely agree. I think it's because she's playing lighter material. She spent weeks wringing her hands, crying, begging Patrick, worrying that Jason might drop dead if someone looks at him cross eyed. That takes it's toll on a person. Just like i wonder if JT has a massive headache by the end of the shooting day, with all the crying he's been doing lately.

^^ And the church says, "Amen."

Jason Morgan has always been this way when with Sam, no different. I think the problem Sam fans are having is that Jason has been Sam's only option and now McBain has stepped onto the scene and she has a potentially viable romantic pairing. Even as a non-Sam fan, I see KeMo and ME have "it" so I say it's a soap and it should pair couples based on chemistry.

I think any claim that Jason is "douchier" now is just an excuse to justify that McBain/McCall are already preferred to JaSam.

Is Ron Carlivati about to retcon Jake's killing? I think RC might be trying to say that Franco stole Jake or something.

It's a cheesy tactic, but if it rights more of the egregious errors writers make, I don't have a problem with it.

Ita, Jen was doing a pretty good job as Maxie yesterday. What a nice change from all the screeching she did at and after Robins' funeral.

My mouth literally dropped open when Sam asked Jason what if Sonny wasn't ever present in their lives. For one, I was shocked because I always said that one of the things that drew Jason to Sam was the fact that she accepted him and what he did without trying to change him. I totally LOVE tha the maternal side of Sam came out and she wondered what their life would be like if Jason did not have to endlessly clean up after Sonny. I found it odd that Sonny would jump to the conclussion that Sam divulged some deep dark secrets of the business, when all this time she has been a good little mob wife.

I sure hope that C/V do not bring Natalie to Port Charles. I did not care for her in Llanview, and I really would like to see the possibilities between John and Sam. Oh, the possibilities! Even though I am a diehard Jasam fan, I think that John and Sam are great together and I would love to see a friendship build and then perhaps blossom into something more, I just don't want to see it overnight.

Speaking of overnight, in real time it has only been about a month since Cole and Hope went over the cliff, and Sonny is already going to trial? That's amazing, but I hope that C/V throw in a surprise guilty verdict and let Sonny deal with the fallout when it comes to light that crazy Connie pulled the trigger and is framing Sonny. Anything to backburner the Sonny show. I was so much happier when Sonny and Jason did not have any scenes together. I was equally pissed that while Jason was in the hospital, Sonny only came by to discuss business.. Sorry, but I hate the little mini mobster he is so over exposed.

Which leads me to Starr. something about that girl just rubs me wrong. I think it is her ability to chew up a scene. She exhausts me, and as much as the idea f Micheal actually getting away from the mob and having a real life makes me glad, I cannot tolerate Starr Manning for more than a few minutes. Sorry she does not do it for me, and I can't believe she has a 3 year contract. I would so much rather have McBain on contract.

Anna, please go back to Patrick and Emma. Luke might be a friend, but Patrick and Emma are family. Besides, Luke just wants to make Tracy jealous ( and it worked, she was pissed)

I am so, so happy that GH is must see for me again. I so hope that it lasts.

Starr Manning has got to go. I have no viable interest in this character whatsoever. The thought of her being on GH for the foreseeable future gives me a headache. Poor Michael. Can he not have someone that does not have issues, especially when he has so many. This pairing is not working for me at all.

@js3557-Sam does get Jason and his business and always has. I totally chalk up Sam's behavior to pregnancy hormones. Even Jason said she hasn't been making much since. Pregnancy makes some people overly paranoid. I know I was worried and stressed about everything. Mortality, the safety of my husband, the safety of myself, the safety of my baby. I think it is only natural to now question Sonny and his business but if she really thinks it through, Sam would realize it would increase the danger for Jason. The timing of her suggestion was wierd considering she and Sonny had a nice bonding moment just recently when Jason was in surgery.

@FFIT-I agree. Jason is being a douche and is hardly showing any warmth to anyone really.

@GHteenybopper-It has been about 10 years since Sam was with Sonny.

I did not really care for the Spin and Matt scenes. Very lame.

Maxie does look best scrubbed down, and more vulnerable.

I actually am warming to Luke. He is being written better. I think he and Anna have great chemistry but on a friendship level and nothing more.

Mcbain is going to be appearing everywhere around Sam it seems.

@Ravennite613-I don't think Sam was fully aware of the danger of Sonny and Jason's life when she was pregnant before. She had not been in Port Charles long. She now has experienced the danger for herself, and seen the full effects. Before, what had she experienced?

To say that Jasam fans prefer McBain/McCall over Jason and Sam is a stretch. I think they have great chemistry, no doubt why they were so popular on Port charles. What I would like to see, and it faintly points to that, is that Jason is going to see McBain as a threat to his relationship with Sam. Sam is pregnant with his child and the question of whether getting out of the business is on the table. Jason just lost the opportunity to be a father to Jake, After Jake was killed there was a lot of coulda, woulda, shoulda between Jason and Elizabeth. Jason now has the chance to have a sucessful marraige and the ability to raise his child without the spector of Sonny and his bullsyht following his every waking moment. Sam is also thinking about the future, and how the life she and Jason now live could affect the baby. I don't think John McBain is a serious threat romantically (there is that pesky wife and kid we keep hearing about)but he is a perceived threat on a couple of different levels. Perhaps enough to make Jason re think his priorities?? Who knows...we shall see.

Soapbaby, I am with you until the Starr leaving at the end of her 13 week cycle. RC "loves" KA to the point that she was neck and neck with TSJ on episode counts and I think it was too much. I think killing Hope off as her GH starting point was maybe RC's worse choice ever and I have hated almost every beat of Starr's storyline since the pregnancy was announced, but I place the blame squarely on RC's shoulders and I am hoping that Starr gets a story which allows KA to show GH fans why One Life fans fell for her originally.

No, never liked her on OLTL, and even less now. Chad Duell needs a better actress. I think he has done a great job from day one.
If he is to have a love interest, maybe a Bonnie Dennison?

ICAM with what Sweetiepie and JaSam had to say on the subject of Sam. I would also point out that I have personally posted on numerous occasions that as a former sonnyFF I have had real problems with the character dating back to about the time he first hooked up with Kate and Ive felt that the character has been going down hill since then. Yes, he still has his sweet, endearing moments, so like Sam I could see, if I had once had a connection to him dating back like carly or robin or sam, that I might have a moment with him like sam did at the hospital while waiting for jason to get through surgery and while mourning robins passing, but I can see why Sam is getting more and more fed up with sonny's antics. Back in the day, Jason hadnt gone to jail in lieu of sonny (which is how I feel about jason going to jail for michael - thats a sacrifice that sonny, as his father, should have been first in line as volunteer.) and sonny had yet to shoot a non mob woman in front of her young daughter and sonny had yet to go after jax and sonny had yet to have all those melt downs at the metro court and sonny had yet to etc. etc. etc. I think sam sees a mob life with a lot less territorial disputes and dangers with jason in charge and far less messes to clean up absent sonny, not because sam suddenly doesnt get it but because sonny is increasingly been a disaster. As someone pointed out, he didnt shoot out anthony's tires, but if he hadnt felt the need to publicly humiliate johnny, there probably would not have been a shooting at the MC and had sonny listened to the million people urging him not to go nuts and take off after anthony, anthony wouldnt have been on the road driving like a maniac, so to a certain extent he is at least partially to blame for the deaths of hope and cole. Should Sam not be distressed by that? Is that the same Sonny that Sam knew and accept say back in 2005? As for sam being one of those messes, while thats true, Sam NEVER ASKED to be "cleaned up". In fact, she ran away several times and when offered money she rejected it, so that little dig really means absolutely nothing to me.

I do see the chemistry between mcBam the same way I see the jasam chemistry and Im intrigued to see how a triangle could play out (it reminds me of the original jax/brenda/sonny triangle when I rooted for both pairings). to suggest that means all the jasam fans are jumping ship is silliness. I also think its silly to suggest that shes never had a viable pairing other than jason. truth is the show never has been willing to let her try other pairings because of the popularity of jasam. Sonny and Jax didnt work because they rushed both pairings and quite frankly carson with TB was too popular (I LOVE Sam NOW but I hated her getting between my Tams Carly and Sonny) and jax/sam was too soon after jenson and written too similarly but they certainly had heat. She definitely had chem with GV's Lucky (and I think its funny that this pairing is now overlooked since so many liason fans back in the day were ALL about touting luSam as a way to get Sam out of the picture) but the problem was tptb were not invested in greg vaughn (and if theres any doubt about that, look at how quickly they dumped him when JJ crooked his little finger and wanted the job back) They've never really let her share any scenes with Johnny and I think those two totally could have lit up the screen. Matt is far too juvenile, ditto spin. Patrick has nice chem with her, but hes robins and neither actor played the scenes that way (patrick also has chem imho with carly but again they havent played the scenes that way - JT just works basically with everyone) I cant see sam putting up with all of original luckys crying. She also had chem with ian, but then they dumped the character. Hell, Ill even go so far as she even has chemistry with dante (although please for the love of god dont ever pair her with him) She at least makes him tolerable which no other actor that he has shared scenes with has been able to do since they revealed that he wasnt in fact dom, but was in fact dante falconari.

I think it makes perfect sense that Sam wants Jason out of the "business" and away from Sonny. I think pregnancy could shift priorities for anyone male or female and whether or not Jasam can get past Sam's change of heart could be good story. It's a soap opera and real life cliche that babies can save relationships but my experience is that they are far more likely to strain them and sometimes to the breaking point. I think a friendship with McBain could add to the tension but I would not want a 3rd party breakup and it would be a nice change to see a couple work through real problems.
